WATCH: Goodbye to The Willow

Love it or hate it The Willow has a place in the lives of thousands of people who have lived and worked in York and North Yorkshire.

It was the venue to go to for a rowdy emotional and cheap Leaving Do, 21st Birthday, Stag and Hen Party or even, in the early days, just a meal.

Now thanks to issues with the lease it's gone for good. Tommy Fong and his staff have closed the door that leads to the steep stairs for the final time and the The Willow is no longer an option for locals and students who just want to drink and dance their stress and troubles away.

Minster FM's David Dunning has had many nights out in The Willow over the last 25 years and shot this video and took these pictures on the final night.
